Occupy Wall Street’s main website, OccupyWallStreet.org, has named Colorado Massacre Shooter James Holmes as an Occupy Black Bloc Member, which has been confirmed by Occupy Black Bloc researcher and expert private investigator Bill Warner.
There are odd parallels between the death of Andrew Breitbart and Obama staffer Alex Okrent. In both cases there were statements reported in the news almost immediately that they had died of heart attacks, even before autopsies were performed. In both cases they oddly collapsed then shortly thereafter died. In both cases their age did not portent a heart attack.
But where Andrew Breitbart was an open book—his life, words, and works literally strewn over the Internet—Alex Okrent’s life is a mystery. An extensive search of the Internet finds that there is literally nothing about him prior to July 13. This is odd given that the Obama campaign has stated he had been a staff member, a “communication employee,” for eight years. Eight years is a long time in politics. But aside from a single blog posting in February of 2008 where Okrent posts an Obama open letter to gays and lesbians regarding his stance on same-sex marriage, nothing shows him to be an Obama staff member or associated with the Obama campaign in any way.
Equally odd is his Twitter timeline. Going back to 2009, of his hundreds of tweets, nothing makes mention of his being a staff member of the Obama campaign, including his bio. Granted, he tweets out support for Obama’s stance on gay marriage; several times tweets that his followers should donate to Obama’s campaign, but there is no “Working on Obama’s campaign xyz today” kind of tweets.
We could probably somehow explain this away, but the literal wiping away of any information on the Internet about Alex Okrent (including a deleted Facebook page) cannot be disregarded. For anyone who has Google’d their own name knows, someone who merely exists in the world is all over the Internet. Their connection to the high school they went to; college; volunteer groups; blogs; what is tweeted; boyfriends, girlfriends, friends, acquaintances, Facebook posts, etc.
Oddly, the last tweet that Alex Okrent made was to a woman named Sarah Roberts. Roberts had tweeted out: “Trying to find a spot/bar to meet someone near Brown Line, Diversey stop: any recommendations?” Okrent had tweeted back: “Delilah’s is about a 5-6 minute walk from there, on Lincoln at Diversey. Grungy dive-y whiskey bar. one of the best.” Delilah’s is a popular Chicago bar frequented by gays and lesbians. But more pointedly, Sarah Roberts, not particularly famous, not associated with the President of the United States, has literally hundreds of photos, thousands of postings associated with her name, like one would expect that is connected with social media. In fact she has been blogging for the past four years and posts various photos of herself, her friends, etc., something we would have expected Alex Okrent to do. Where are the photos of Obama staffers having a drink after a hard day of work? Aside from the one photo of Okrent allegedly at Obama campaign headquarters on his Twitter bio, there are no photos. Okrent has been with the Obama campaign for eight years and no photos of Obama? No photos of campaign events? No photos of fellow Obama staff members?
Further, his family, mother Lynn Pollack and Mike Okrent live in Evanston, minutes away from the Chicago headquarters where Okrent worked, and there are no photos of family events. No tweets as, ‘My birthday today. Here’s a photo of me and my mom,’ etc.
Here’s another odd fact. Lynn Pollack, the mother, appears on the Internet more than her son. Not in a good way either. Pollack is extensively associated and has a leadership role in an organization named innocuously Jewish Voice for Peace. Despite its name, the group is virulently anti-Israel, believing the Jews are occupying the land of Israel; are guilty of “apartheid,” i.e., the normal Islamic extremist line that Jews are illegally living in Israel. That somehow having a four-thousand year connection to a land is irrelevant. That those who espouse the “apartheid” meme also often seek the Jews annihilation being ignored. Jewish Voice for Peace is part of the “social justice” umbrella of anti-Israel groups, such CODEPINK, that have touchy-feely names, but have extensive radical ties (in the days when radicals were outed as radicals, we’d call them front groups).
This oddity goes further, in that this group is comprised of many Jews. “Self-hating” as some have called it. In fact Alex Okrent’s sister, Abigail Okrent, finds herself on a website called the Jewish S.H.I.T. List (Self-Hating and/or Israel-Threatening). Of Abigail Okrent the website writes: ‘This Evanston, Illinois Jew is a member of Jeff Alpert’s pro-Arab Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.” Abigail Okrent is also found on Marxist watchdog Trevor Loudon’s website. Even odder, Alex Okrent is listed on this Jewish S.H.I.T. List website, but with no description. His mother is also on a petition entitled American Jews Oppose Israeli Policy in Gaza. In fact the person conducting Okrent’s funeral,Howard Friedland, has been identified as an Israel-hating Marxist.
Could this be the link of Obama’s anti-Israel, Marxist policies that Obama had to conveniently sweep away?
Given the ability of this President to cover up all of his radical connections, all of his past abominations, we may never know.
A huge story on July 13 was the death of Obama campaign staffer Alex Okrent. Apparently, he had been at Obama’s campaign headquarters in Chicago, fine one minute, dead the next. Witnesses say he collapsed, whereby paramedics were called, and the next thing everyone knows, he’s dead.
Young, twenty-nine years old? Mysteriously dies?
Nothing to see here, move on…
Per the Obama campaign, Okrent had been a staffer going all the way back to Obama’s 2004 U.S. senate campaign—being on staff for eight years. That’s a long time.
The guy must have a lot of history. A lot of stories to tell.
Do a Google search. You will find that the guy literally does not exist. Except for the story about his death, the guy does not appear anywhere. Even if he wasn’t an Obama campaign staffer, anyone who has googled their own name knows everyone that walks the face of this Earth who has not lived in a cave all of their lives will be all over the Internet.
His existence wiped clean?
Oddly, his Twitter account is still active. While his timeline shows him to be an Obama supporter, nothing, going all the way back to 2009, indicates he was an Obama staffer.
His does appear to be a gay marriage supporter, and while his timeline does not indicate he is gay, one photo dug up in an archived Twitter post seems to indicate he was gay. Also, the last thing he tweeted was a suggestion to go to a popular Chicago bar frequented by lesbians and gays.
Another Obama gay connection?
Perhaps nothing to see here. Perhaps it is another right-wing conspiracy theory.
Of course, we were told that calling the birth certificate a forgery was a conspiracy theory, and that turned out to be true…
Bloggers have been combing through the recent WikiLeaks Syrian email dump, looking at the inner workings of Syrian officials, the bulk being culled from what is referred to as the Syrian MOPA (Ministry of Presidential Affairs).
Indyk emailed an official in the Syrian regime about a trip that former Fannie Mae executive Jim Johnson was planning on making to Syria in June of 2010. Indyk goes on to describe Johnson’s continuing relationship with Obama, including huge sums donated to his campaign, stating that “he is very influential in the Obama White House and in the Democratic Party.”
Indyk’s point is that Jim Johnson is a “very important person”, and it would behoove Syrian officials to meet with him and his wife as they are touring Damascus.
Given that Johnson has been mired in scandal with Fannie Mae and Countrywide Mortgage and was identified by World Net Daily’s Jerome Corsi as one of Obama’s “Obots” regarding the forged birth certificate, Johnson meeting with Syrian officials basically on Obama’s coattails should send up red flags.
Whether Johnson’s secret meeting with Syrian officials was in fact illegal under U.S. Code is another matter.
The Fast and Furious/Brian Terry Murder cover-up is just the most recent in a long line of cover-ups that Eric Holder has been involved in over the years. Holder cut his teeth on the art of cover-up with the Kenneth Michael Trentadue torture-murder case in the 1990s, learning the art of keeping facts out of the purview of the courts, media, public, and Congress. Learn about this horrific case that has Eric Holder’s fingerprints all over it.
Read Part 1 here.
Read Part 2 here.
Read part 3 here.
In order to ask why Eric Holder is such a master of cover-ups in regards to Fast and Furious, we need only look at the 1995 torture-murder case of Kenneth Michael Trentadue. In Fast and Furious, there are thousands of hidden emails and memos, intimidation of whistleblowers, gag orders, and ties to unsavory figures, not to mention the murder of hundreds including Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.
Holder got his “on-the-job training” in the art of the cover-up with the Trentadue case while Deputy Attorney General and then Acting Attorney General under Bill Clinton. Per Holder, it wasn’t wrong to cover up the death of an American citizen. Per Holder, it wasn’t wrong that the Trentadue family has suffered every day since that fateful morning on August 21, 1995. Per Holder, it was wrong because the Government got caught with their pants down. It was wrong because Holder made the mistake of putting things in writing. “Never again”, he more than likely said to himself.
In a way, Fast and Furious is an almost expanded version of the Trentadue case, whereby an American citizen was murdered; whereby his Mexican citizen wife, Carmen Aguilar Trentadue, and their then-two-month-old son have suffered all these years. Today, the Brian Terry family suffers, and the families of hundreds of Mexican citizens who are dead from Fast and Furious weapons also suffer. Eric Holder is not sad for these; neither is he sad that Brian Terry is dead. He is sad because he got caught.
As Jessie Trentadue, Kenny’s brother, continued to fight to bring his brother’s murderers to justice, a new leader came on the scene in 2008. He called for a “fundamental transformation” of our government. Would that mean justice for the Trentadue family? When it was announced that Obama would appoint Eric Holder as his Attorney General, Jessie Trentadue was in shock. This was the man who had probably, more than any other person, helped to cover up the murder of his brother, and unbelievably, he was being nominated to the highest law enforcement position in the country.
Impossible. But it was true.
Jessie Trentadue quickly wrote a letter to Senator Patrick Leahy, the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee leading the confirmation hearings, informing him of Holder’s perfidiousness. Unfortunately for the United States, and unfortunately for the Brian Terry family and the hundreds of families grieving in Mexico today, this letter was ignored. Holder went on to bring about the most unjust Department of Justice that has ever existed in the United States, or probably will ever exist, from dismissing the New Black Panther voter intimidation case to Fast and Furious.
But let us get back to this letter that, if it would have been read by Congress, would have saved the United States from the scourge of Eric Holder, the man of whom we can say, “He lied. People died.”
In the 2008 letter, Holder is described as the “point man,” in charge of keeping the Trentadue case from the public eye, media, courts, and out of congressional purview. In a deceitful move, Holder called for a gag order on the grand jury convened in 1997 to investigate the Trentadue case, supposedly so that the grand jury could come to a reasonable, unbiased outcome. But the true purpose was to keep the story out of the news until the “Trentadue Mission,” as Team Holder called it, could come out with a “roll out plan” to stave off public outrage, media questions, and congressional inquiry. Team Holder likened this “Trentadue Mission” to an invasion. In the emails that Jessie Trentadue refers to in the letter, Juliette Kayyem of the DOJ says, “This is like coordinating the invasion of Normandy. We are on for Monday; the declination memo is done. Is This Ok with Eric’s [Holder’s] schedule (I can call whoever does that.) I talked to Faith and she is going to think about the best way to approach Hatch and possibly Dorgan, and I will get back to you. Also, we will be contacting the FBI and Jesse Trentadue at the same time (about 2 Hours before the press release).”
Likening the act of suppressing the Trentadue case to the invasion of Normandy probably wasn’t the best metaphor. Perhaps Hitler’s invasion of Poland would have been a better figure of speech. Further, as if covering up the murder of Trentadue wasn’t bad enough, they made a mockery of the family name by a series of do’s and don’ts as “Trentadue-does and Trentadon’ts” in their roll-out plan.
The grand jury completed their investigation on August 1, 1997, but Team Holder didn’t inform the court to lift the gag order until October 21, 1997. Then on August 18, 1998, after the obfuscation of the Government within the grand jury failed to bring justice, the Trentadue family brought a wrongful death lawsuit, again fought against by Team Holder, and was told by U.S. District Judge Tim Leonard that there was again another gag order, requested by Team Holder. Team Holder was good at keeping the case out of the eyes of the public. But now they had to keep it out of the purview of congressional inquiry.
Senator Orrin Hatch was contacted by Holder personally, which unfortunately for Holder didn’t go too well as Senator Hatch gave an interview to Fox News the next day, calling for a congressional inquiry. This congressional inquiry never happened, however, primarily because of “Plan B” by Team Holder, whereby an FBI delegation led by agent Thomas Kuker from the Oklahoma office approached Oklahoma Senator Don Nickles to suppress the congressional inquiry. There were two meetings. One occurred on December 4, 1997 and the other on January 23, 1998, whereby Nickles promised to keep the investigation out of Congress. He kept his word as there has not been a congressional inquiry to this day.
Add to this the fact that no one has ever paid for the murder of Kenneth Michael Trentadue. No one has ever paid for the massive cover-up, the destruction of evidence, perjury, subornation of perjury, and God knows what else.
Team Holder likened the “Trentadue Mission” to storming the shores of Normandy. The purpose of the invasion of Normandy was to vanquish an evil dictator who wanted to slaughter everyone and everything in his path. Team Holder got it wrong. They were on the shores of Normandy. They were the enemy. Not the other way around. Eric Holder should be impeached, removed from office, indicted, and imprisoned for a very long time. Those who perpetrated and covered up the murder of Kenneth Michael Trentadue likewise should have been put away for a very long time. As for Fast and Furious: ditto. Those who put the guns into the hands of the Mexican cartel members—ATF, DOJ, Eric Holder—to murder hundreds of Mexican citizens, as well as Brian Terr, should also be imprisoned for a very long time.
In the last paragraph of Jessie Trentadue’s letter to Congress, the following statement is found:
“No one could be less suitable to uphold the principles of justice in America than Eric Holder.”
Let this refrain be repeated by the American people until that scourge and Barack Hussein Obama, the man who foisted this scourge on our great country, are removed from office forever.

Kenneth Michael Trentadue’s battered body arrived at the southern California mortuary, met by his Hispanic wife and mother of his two-month-old son (Carmen Aguilar Trentadue), and Kenneth’s mother. That he wasn’t rather in an urn was a miracle. Kenneth’s battered and bloody body had been lying in the Oklahoma City Federal Transfer Center (OKFTC) infirmary two weeks earlier, on August 21, 1995, dying supposedly from hanging himself. Acting Warden Marie Carter, in order to cover up the obvious murder, was desperately trying to get the body cremated. This proved to be unsuccessful as well as illegal, according to federal law.
When the body arrived at the mortuary, Kenny’s two dozen wounds were covered heavily in makeup.
As Kenny’s brother Jessie Trentadue would later relate, it was the women in Kenneth Trentadue’s life who undressed Kenny and scraped the makeup away. It was the women who decided to meticulously photograph Kenneth’s dozens of wounds. Strangely, the clothes on Kenneth were not his own. The T-shirt, pants, shoes, and socks that he was wearing while murdered conveniently disappeared. When the Medical Examiner team had arrived on the morning of August 21, 1995, Trentadue was merely clothed in a pair of boxer shorts.
At the time of Kenneth Trentadue’s murder, he and his wife Carmen had been living an idyllic life in Mexico. Carmen, a native Mexican, had given birth to a beautiful baby son, Vito Miguel, two months earlier.
Kenneth Trentadue, after robbing banks under the alias Vance Paul Brockway, getting caught, and paying his debt to society with six years in prison, was now committed to raising a family. He and his parole officer had had an argument as to whether he should be allowed to drink beer. Kenny saw nothing wrong with it, while his parole officer thought otherwise. In the end, Kenny would stop showing up to meet with his parole officer to simply be able to drink beer, and a warrant was issued for his arrest. No one came looking for him, however.
At least until the beginning of August 1995. He had been crossing the Tijuana-San Diego border, driving into the States to work a construction job when a Border Patrol agent stopped him for appearing to be drunk. Upon a check, the Border Patrol agent found the outstanding warrant, and Kenneth Trentadue was taken to jail.
This was, however, during the time of the biggest manhunt in U.S. history. The Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City had been bombed on April 19, 1995, and the whole world was looking for the perpetrators. Timothy McVeigh had been caught, but his accomplice, referred to as John Doe #2, was still at large. By many witness accounts, this John Doe #2 had been seen with McVeigh when he rented the Ryder truck at Elliott’s Body Shop used in the bombing.
Unfortunately for Trentadue, he was almost an exact match of the description witnesses had given of John Doe #2, including a dragon tattoo on his left arm. Soon, U.S. Marshals would arrive to fly Trentadue via a chartered jet to Oklahoma City Federal Transfer Center, where he would later be beaten to death.
Of course because John Doe #2 was eventually determined to be a mass hallucination by all the witnesses, the fact that Kenneth Michael Trentadue was beaten to death would also be deemed to simply be a conspiracy theory.
But the fact is that a woman, Carmen Aguilar Trentadue, the loving wife of Kenny and mother of his beautiful two-month-old son, stood there in a southern California mortuary and undressed her husband, scraped away the thick makeup, and wondered who had committed this heinous crime and why the great United States of America was covering it up—literally.
Is one man’s life worth the trouble to ask “who murdered him?” Is the sorrow of one woman, not even an American citizen, worth the trouble? Is the pain of a boy growing up, having his father viciously taken away, worth the trouble?
Fred B. Jordan, the Medical Examiner who knew it was murder from the day the battered body of Kenneth Trentadue lay on the gurney in his examination room, thought so. He thought so when he looked into the eyes of the three women in Kenny’s life—his mother, sister, and wife—and told them he would never go back on them. That was a promise made, and a promise broken. Why?
Enter Tom Bevel, the crime scene reconstruction expert brought in after it was apparent the Bureau of Prisons, FBI, and Deputy (and later Acting) Attorney General Eric Holder were not making any progress in the case. The investigation had been marred by lies and cover-ups, including Eric Holder’s ad nauseam gag orders and calls for keeping documents out of the hands of Congressional investigators because of “ongoing investigations”—sound familiar?
Tom Bevel was sort of a wonder boy, retired from the Oklahoma City Police Department where he served as a detective. He could be labeled a “problem solver” like Winston Wolf in the movie Pulp Fiction, known for making “problems” go away. He even had a bestselling book, Bloodstain Pattern Analysis. Too bad for him that the bloodstains in Kenny’s cell were meticulously cleaned before he could analyze them. But that didn’t stop Bevel from contriving his fantasy.
One of Bevel’s wondrous works of “problem solving” was the matter of Fred B. Jordan. Jordan, along with promising the family that he’d never give up, made a rare appearance Fox News on July 3, 1997, almost like a voice crying in the wilderness for justice. But Jordan hadn’t met Tom Bevel, the Winston Wolf of this world. After a few minutes with Bevel and his outrageous report as to how Trentadue came to die, Jordan quickly changed his tune. On July 10, 1998, almost exactly a year after his impassioned appearance on Fox News, Jordan signed the death certificate, probably with a shaky hand and with Bevel probably looking over his shoulder smiling eerily. His shaky hand would write “Suicide.” Whether Bevel whispered the name Alden Gillis Baker in Jordan’s ear as his shaky hand scrawled the word “Suicide,” we shall probably never know. Baker was the inmate who had stated Trentadue had been tortured and beaten to death, and who later “hung” himself.
Bevel penned the fictional exposé (entitled the “Wintory Report,” named after his minion Assistant Prosecutor Richard Wintory) describing how Trentadue, in a 16-minute period of time, made it look like he had been tortured and murdered.
(Read Part 1 here.)
August 21, 1995 was a busy time for the Oklahoma City Federal Transfer Center (OKFTC). Kenneth Michael Trentadue, once full of life, was now lying dead in the infirmary as a battered shell of what he had once been.
Acting Warden Marie Carter phoned Trentadue’s mother and lied, saying that her son had committed suicide by hanging himself and, contrary to federal law, asked permission to immediately cremate her son. Then Carter was on the phone with the Oklahoma Medical Examiner’s office, asking what procedures to take to cremate Trentadue’s body, even though Trentadue’s mother had expressly forbidden it.
Tammi Gillis from the Medical Examiner’s office, along with an assistant, was on the prison grounds in the infirmary looking at the battered body of Kenneth Trentadue. Upon hearing officials say that Trentadue had simply died by asphyxiation due to hanging, Gillis was incredulous and requested entrance to Trentadue’s cell. This was denied, in which again, contrary to federal law, it was stated that the FBI was doing its own investigation. (This FBI investigation of the cell would never take place). Gillis was only permitted to look through the small window in Trentadue’s cell. All in all, according to records, she and her assistant were on prison grounds for a total of twenty minutes, taking the body with them.
At one point before the Medical Examiner’s team arrived, a videotape was made of Trentadue and his cell by Roger T. Groover, a guard at the prison. This recording was later deemed to not exist. (More on this later).
Enter FBI agent Kenneth W. Freeman, supposedly in charge of the investigation. Apparently, as part of his thoroughness, instead of treating Trentadue’s cell as a crime scene, there was assigned a team of inmates with prison guards looking on to meticulously clean the cell. This included blood spatter on the walls four feet off the floor, pools of blood, and pieces of flesh and hair strewn everywhere.
The Bureau of Prisons dispatched a team referred to as the Psychological Reconstruction Unit, the one part of the investigation required by law after an inmate’s suicide that actually was carried out. The team arrived at about 2 p.m. later that day. They found the cell wiped clean of everything: blood, flesh, hair, fingerprints-the truth-and left unable to do any real investigation.
Meanwhile, Medical Examiner Fred B. Jordan was examining the battered body of Kenneth Trentadue, while his assistants filed in and out to vomit, being sickened by the condition of the body. There were two dozen wounds to the body, including three skull fractures, his throat cut ear to ear, a broken hyoid bone (indicating strangulation, not hanging), fingertip wounds on his biceps (that is, from being held down), bruising on the anal verge (from being repeatedly kicked with hard-soled shoes), and others. That day, the Medical Examiner began an almost three-year journey to find out the nightmare that Kenneth Trentadue went through that early morning on August 21, 1995.
When the Medical Examiner finally gained access to that cell almost five months later, spraying the chemical luminol (which shows the presence of minuscule amounts of blood), the cell “lit up like a candle.” Along with blood on the floor and on the walls four feet from the floor, one of the most disturbing images that seared into his mind was a bloody handprint near the cell’s panic button, in which the handprint is shown to streak downwards (as if Kenny had tried to hit the button but failed to do so.) Was this the moment that Kenneth Trentadue’s soul left his body while his murderers, hands bloody with violence and hatred in their eyes, looked on? We will probably never know.
An inmate at the time of Trentadue’s murder, Alden Gillis Baker, would state that he heard Trentadue being beaten and tortured to death and named the perpetrators as prison guards Robert A. Garza and Wiley Creasey. He later asked for protection from the Government. That same Government found his claims of murder baseless, along with his call for protection. Conveniently, Baker would follow the same fate as Trentadue: he hung himself. This would be the second suspicious death. The third suspicious death was forensic audio-video expert Norman I. Pearle, who would state that the video recording of Trentadue’s body and cell taken by Roger T. Groover (a guard at the prison) did not, as reported, “malfunction,” but had been erased. Pearle would escape being hung and instead quietly die of a “heart attack.” Conveniently, for the Government, the audio-video forensic expert next in line had a contrary opinion of the blank videotape.
For almost three years, Medical Examiner Fred B. Jordan would fight an almost single-handed battle to find the truth, contacting the Bureau of Prisons, FBI, and finally the Department of Justice, working his way up to Deputy Attorney General (later Acting Attorney General) Eric Holder.
Jordan was told Holder wasn’t available.
What was found out later was that Eric Holder was indeed available, but not to Jordan. Holder would become the “point man” in the cover-up. He would orchestrate what the media would be told and would stave off a congressional investigation. As Jessie Trentadue, Kenneth’s older brother, would state in a letter to Congress in December of 2008 while Holder was going through confirmation hearings as Obama’s choice as Attorney General, Holder was not only the DOJ “point man.” He also had developed a “roll out plan,” beginning with lying to the court in order to file gag orders to keep the case out of the media so the DOJ had time to develop a strategy to quash both the grand jury and the Trentadue family’s wrongful death lawsuit proceedings.
Jordan would go on Fox News on July 3, 1997, passionately proclaiming he would one day get at the truth and expose the cover-up. He had met with the family and promised them he would never give up. According to Jessie Trentadue, “Jordan repeatedly told us this was a murder, but because the crime scene had been destroyed, he had to list the manner of death as unknown. He also looked my mother, Carmen, and sister in the eye and told them he would never go back on them.”
That promise was broken three years later when Jordan succumbed to political pressure and ruled Trentadue’s death a suicide.
Like the Brian Terry family, the Trentadue family is still waiting for answers.

Barack Obama travelled far and wide promoting ObamaCare, promising that the middle class would not have their taxes raised, also promising everyone the moon.
Meanwhile, as ObamaCare was being rammed through Congress, anyone who considered the ObamaCare mandate a tax was put in a box, labeled as an extremist and a right-wing radical.
When twenty-six states challenged the constitutionality of ObamaCare, Obama’s own Solicitor General, in order to cover all the bases, argued before the Supreme Court that the Mandate was in fact a tax.
When Chief Justice Roberts sided with the liberal wing of the Supreme Court and concurred with Obama to allow Congress to literally compel any behavior by simply taxing the American people, Obama and his surrogates had the audacity to state that the Mandate was in fact not a tax.
Does Obama think the American people are stupid? Does he think that we exist within the confines of Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984 where the past is shoved into a memory hole?
The audio of the Supreme Court oral arguments clearly show Solicitor General Donald Verrilli arguing that the mandate is in fact a tax. And if that is the case, Obama has lied on two counts: 1. That he wouldn’t raise taxes on the middle class. 2. That the Mandate was not a tax.
When exactly the American people will become disgusted with this man’s lies, with his Attorney General’s lies, and with the constant lies that proceed out of his Administration bolstered by his media palace guards, remains to be seen.
Let us hope it is soon.
If an award was given out for the individual who worked the hardest to kill himself, that award would have to be given to Kenneth Michael Trentadue. In his cell at the Oklahoma City Federal Transfer Center on August 21, 1995, he patiently tore his sheet into dozens of strips, tied them together into a noose, attached it to a vent grate, and made his bed like a good little boy.
He then proceeded to hang himself.
Unfortunately, his handy work wasn’t up to par, and the noose broke, whereby he first hit the sink, “ricocheted” to the metal desk, hitting his head, bouncing again, hitting his head on the wall, and scraping skin off his back. Being half-conscious, he got up and fell again, hitting his head on a metal stool. Being determined to kill himself, he then cut his throat ear to ear with a plastic knife or tube of toothpaste, but this didn’t do the job, and so tried to hang himself again, this time being successful. Not to be outdone by anyone else, all of this was not only accomplished, but accomplished in record time. Everything occurred within sixteen minutes, including tearing the sheet into strips and forming the noose.
At least that’s what the U.S. Government said happen to him.
Well, they didn’t tell his family all these strange circumstances that led to his death until, well, three years later, with the introduction into the picture of a forensic expert by the name of Tom Bevel. (More on him later)
Marie Carter, the acting warden of Oklahoma City Federal Transfer Center (OKFTC), phoned Trentadue’s mother at 3 a.m. to inform her that her son had just hung himself with a bed sheet. And, like all good acting wardens, she offered to immediately cremate her son free of charge. Mom said “thanks but no thanks” and informed the Good Samaritan Marie that one of her other sons was a lawyer and they’d get back to her.
When the family got Trentadue home, they would find his body beaten and gashed from head to foot—literally—as there were even bruises on his feet. Along with his throat being cut ear to ear, there were three wounds to the head, all fracturing his skull. There was also a strange impression on his throat, which, for anyone who has handled what are called cable ties (and as law enforcement uses them for handcuffs—Flexcuffs), knows, the impression on Trentadue’s throat was made from the ridges on a cable tie being pressed and tightened around his neck.
It was obvious to the family, including Jessie Trentadue-the lawyer in the family-that his brother was beaten and murdered. But what wasn’t obvious was why the Government was trying to cover it up.
What they would come to find out after a sinuous journey of lies, deceptions, stonewalling, and cover-ups from the Bureau of Prisons, FBI, and eventually Eric Holder, was the following. Kenneth Michael Trendadue, in the aftermath of the bombing of the Arthur P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995, was murdered because the FBI thought he was the elusive John Doe #2 and wouldn’t admit to it (at least until they said John Doe #2 didn’t actually exist, contrary to dozens of witnesses).
What the Trentadue family has sought since they saw Kenny’s mangled body is justice. Where does one find justice? At the Department of Justice, of course.
Unfortunately for the family, at the time, Eric Holder was the Deputy Attorney General under Janet Reno, and later Acting Attorney General.
And we all know how Eric Holder is about administering justice.
In late 2008, when it was announced that Eric Holder, Obama’s choice of Attorney General, was about to go through congressional confirmation hearings, Jessie Trentadue sent a scathing letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee. This letter described Holder as the “point man” to keep the Trentadue family’s wrongful death lawsuit at bay, and to keep the story out of the media and forestall a congressional investigation.
Sound familiar? Eric Holder involved in a cover-up, keeping the truth of an American citizen’s murder out of the purview of the public, the mainstream media, and Congress?
Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry is dead wholly due to the fact that Eric Holder was not held accountable for the cover-up of the murder of Kenneth Michael Trentadue. If he had been held accountable, there would have never been a “botched” gunrunning scheme masquerading as a way to disarm the American people. Would not have left a patriot’s family mourning the loss of their son. Would not have left this stain on America that has Barack Hussein Obama’s fingerprints all over it.
